Pussy Whipped

It only took a second for our sweet little kitten to swipe a slice of turkey off the sandwich I was making this morning. I’d gone to the fridge for mayo and got back just in time to see her dragging some deli meat across the floor. Even the dogs were astounded.

This all started back in June. My wife called and said she had a Father’s Day surprise for me. What could it be? Perhaps it’s a kayak! An iPhone maybe? Surely she didn’t miss the hints I’d dropped about that ridiculously expensive lens for my camera.

None of the above. It was a kitten. Look! See how cute she was. Was.

Now she is the cat from hell, climbing all over everything, stealing food, jumping into the refrigerator, knocking stuff off the shelves —and since we now have three cats I figure we’re just one away from the quota for being crazy cat people.

If this looks like fun to you, good news: the cat adoption folks, Whiskers, is having a cat sale. This month you can adopt one for just $50 instead of $100. Half off? What a deal —but if you’d care to make me an offer maybe I could save you some money.

Meanwhile, if I offer you a sandwich…

  1. My wife and I recently had to put our cat to sleep because his
    kidneys were in acute failure at age 13. I miss him a lot.
    He would help himself to my sandwich as well, and I would
    love to have him do that just one more time .

  2. She has spunk, and ambition. Can’t fault her for that! I’m with Teddy, I miss my cat and my dog ūüė¶

  3. As Lou Grant once told Mary Richards”

    “You’ve got spunk. I hate spunk.”

  4. And this is why I don’t have any cats.

  5. We got a new kitten about 2 months ago. I thought she was adorable. She’s actually psychotic. I have taken to calling her Princess B*tch. I have two male cats that NEVER drove us this crazy. Perhaps its a female cat thing?? She’s cute for about 1 hour a day… when she’s sleeping.

  6. yes 3 is definitely the max, four is definitely on the other side of the line.

  7. “cat from hell” = redundant
